Honest to God, Session 4: Live It Out Option for parents’ groups

89791970

This session has been all about why you should trust the Bible. And we pray that your faith in God’s Word has been strengthened as a result of this session, and you look forward to making it more alive in your own life.

But what about in your family? This week, if you have never led a family devotional or Bible time with your kids, make it a priority. If you aren’t sure where to start, then download this week’s One Conversation.

Take the steps needed to make God’s Word THE priority in your life this week. Set a time, a place, and mark it on the calendar. Ask the Holy Spirit to reveal to you just how true, worthwhile, and life-giving daily study is!

Substitute the following question for Question 3 in the Personal Study Guide:

  • How might your kids describe God after reading some of their favorite Bible Stories? How can you use their Biblical understanding to help them know God better and believe His Word fully?

Substitute the following question for Question 4 in the Personal Study Guide:

  • Why should your kids follow God’s Word? What from your own life would compel to follow it?

We want to hear from you! How are you introducing the topic of trusting the Bible with the parents in your class or small group?

  1. You ask, “How are you introducing the topic of trusting the Bible with the parents in your class/” Honestly I have many single parents in my class that aren’t sure they trust the Bible at this point in their lives. Some were raised in the church, married in the church and now their partner has walked out. They are questioning everything.

    I have others that are struggling to believe in God and the Bible when they don’t have enough food on the table for their little ones. These sessions are hard to teach.

    I have done an several different things through this series. This week I’m taking in some old dolls from my childhood and will open with “what items or toys from your childhood still work or still mean a lot to you? Why?’ And then the next question is, “What concepts, philosophies or even Biblical precepts did you learn as a child that don’t seem to apply to your life today? Or don’t hold true today?”

    Hopefully from that point I can lead them into the lesson. Please we need sessions / lessons for single parents. They are parenting and while I try to take something from the parent section it doesn’t always apply to parenting alone. The singles section doesn’t work because they are not single – they are parents.

    Thanks for listening

      Great idea, Linda. Thanks for the post. We do our best to make the posts for parents applicable to single parents as well. Where we fall short, we count on users like you to help us further modify any suggestion to make it even more relevant to your specific group. Thanks again.
